CANON GALLERY, SHINAGAWA

Japan's first 35mm focal-plane shutter rangefinder camera was introduced into the market in 1935. This all started in a small streetside shop in Tokyo, the "Precision Optical Instruments Laboratory," to produce the prototype camera called "Kwanon," which later evolved into the "Hansa Canon."This is the origin of Canon's camera making which always involves many trial and error processes. Small but steady steps for Canon cameras were initiated here. (from Canon Camera Museum)
